Large enough for a prolonged stay and our apartment had a view towards Table Mountain and up Long Street. Furnishings were pared down to the essentials and decoration was minimal – one rather ugly painting in modernist style. An empty hook on the wall above the bed suggested there had once been a picture there too …. The net curtains...

The best feature of the hotel is it's location right on the Long "party" Street but enough further away from the main hassle. Its self catering apartement, pretty basic but everything you need is still there. We only stayed there one night and the location justified the price which was a bit higher sider then would have been expected.

Excellent location, high quality appliances and furniture. Only possible drawback was that the Food lovers market downstairs was closed over the weekend. We appreciated the safe parking and also felt very safe in the building.

I stayed at Icon for 7 nights with a colleague and while the building was well located with the Food Market directly below the apartment and a short walk to the CTICC convention centre. The apartment was large with good facilities (washing machine, gym and pool in the building) and the building was well secured. However, the apartment itself was...

The rooms are comfortable but, as seems to be the case with all similar apartment hotels in the CBD/Waterfront area, the bedrooms are small with no natural air or air-conditioning...

Being waken up by the staff 2hrs before the check out. Having to argue that the check out time we have on our confirmation document is right and being disturbed again 1hr later by some more staff is just not good enough. Really felt like being pushed out ... also internet is payable ... for this standard appartement it should...

Had a good experience here. We have stayed at more luxurious apartments, but these are perfectly acceptable and well priced. Adequately equipped and good selection of stores in the building foyer. Cleaners did an acceptable job.

We were in Cape Town for the Cycle Tour and had a great stay at the Icon. We had a stunning corner apartment with a huge patio and an amazing view of Lions Head & Signal Hill. The onsite gym and swimming pool is a bonus. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and the apartment is spacious & clean....
